A venue in Suffolk has been named one of the best wedding venues in the UK, according to a new study. Hengrave Hall, a Grade I listed Tudor mansion near Bury St Edmunds, has been rated the 7th best wedding venue in the UK in a new study by the Brindley Group.
Brindley Group dug through a selection of wedding destination databases and supplemented the results with Google search data. Each location was then ranked based on popular factors people consider when choosing a destination for their big day. These factors include: Google rating, onsite accommodation, onsite parking, average maximum temperature during wedding season, and average monthly rainfall during wedding season. After assigning points to each category, Brindley Group calculated an overall score for each site out of 100.

The list was dominated by South Farm in Cambridgeshire, which achieved an impressive overall score of 92/100, but Hengrave Hall was the only Suffolk representation in the top 10. Located just north of Bury St Edmunds, Hengrave Hall is set within 350 acres of stunning Suffolk countryside and claims to be ‘the UK’s most romantic wedding and event venue’.
Indoor weddings start at £4,000, depending on the day of the week and time of year. The venue achieved an overall score of 88/100 using the Brindley Group metric, placing it above Hampton Court House in Surrey, Hever Castle in Kent and Braxted Park in Essex.
